Say hello to the Frog Prince {Another Vintage Inspired Baby Dress}

I had a lot of fun the other night sewing up another Vintage-Inspired Baby Dress. The tutorial for this dress has had A LOT of visitors this month and I can only imagine that the search term “vintage baby dress pattern free” has been bringing in so many visitors because of Vintage May which is going on right now, as we speak, at Skirt as Top and Craftiness Is Not Optional.

I know I’m a little late to the party here (it’s the 22nd of May) but I’ve been oohing and ahhing over the many amazing vintage-inspired posts Kristin has been hosting. Have you seen them? I particularly love this dress by Probably Actually, and I will probably, no, actually be buying that fabric and those Oliver and S patterns as soon as I’m done here.

All this talk of vintage kid patterns sent me back to my vintage-inspired baby dress. I have a soft spot in my heart for this dress because, as you know if you’ve read the tutorial, I wore these dresses as a baby. And since we’re headed into summer it’s the perfect time to pull the pattern out and make a few more lovelies. Don’t be surprised if you see a few more of these on the blog in the near future.

Here are a few more shots. I added a delicious blue baby pompom fringe to the top and vintage lace to the bottom (Vintage May!).

The fabric is from my most favorite, favorite fabric line in the world, Heather Ross‘ Far Far Away I. It’s out of print now and has been for a long time (boo), but I’ve been holding on to this piece for a couple of years. I love this little frog and I think the colors are perfect for a vintage-inspired dress. Don’t you agree?

If you’d like to make one of these yourself, hop on over to the tutorial! Thanks for reading, friends!

      Hi Melissa! It’s made for a newborn, but I’ve seen a friend put it on her 6 m/o baby. I think it just depends on how big you make the arm holes. I bet you could resize it easily if necessary. I’m off to email this info to you now in case you don’t see this! Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting!
